The Cook Islands Taxi Association (CITA) consists of privately owned taxi operators who have partnered together with the aim of improving the standard and delivery of taxi services on Rarotonga. The taxi association strives for excellence and will always do so with a Cook Islands smile and hospitality.

A number of operators around the island have amalgamated into the Cook Islands Taxi Association. Look for the bright green cars and vans. Rates are about NZ$3 per kilometre. From Muri to the airport will cost around NZ$40, and there is also the option of fixed-price airport transfers of NZ$15 to NZ$20 per person to destinations around the island.

Licensed taxi’s operate under a constitution, code of conduct and carry 3rd party insurance. Taxi services are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The taxi association can be contacted on email at with pre bookings accepted in advance with written confirmations.
